America celebrates its biggest holiday, Independence Day on July 4th with fireworks, parades, concerts, grilling and chilling.
Pictured is the Lowell Showboat decked out in patriotic colors. The Showboat annually serves as a venue for the Sizzlin’ Summer Concert Series. I always run around with the camera, but I manage to enjoy the concerts from the deck of the boat. Summers in my hometown Lowell are busy with events ranging from Riverwalk Festival which runs this year from July 11 through July 13.
A definite highlight of Lowell summers is relaxing music on the bank of the Flat River. Bring a chair or a blanket.
The annual Sizzlin’ Summer concert series is held on the Riverwalk stage every Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. This year it runs from June 13 to Aug. 22. You can celebrate July 4th with the 126 Army Band under the direction of Chief Warrant Officer Jon Montgomery this Thursday.
During the Riverwalk, the Delilah DeWylde and the Lost Boys will be playing on the stage.
